Maybe you shouldn't use your first comment in a good while just to sing your usual gloom song, then? Misery loves company?

I can guarantee you that the thing we're working on won't live up to your high erotic standards.

But still around to support the game *buys hat*

Is the hat income good again?


Thanks for the support!

While not enormous, it has actually been better than it used to be, and we also decided to just try it out for a while. If nothing else the Gold and Silver subs get some free nonsense, and every little helps us.

I really enjoy the hats, I have to say. I do wish there were a few more medieval styled options rather than the more anachronistic forms, but I'd lie if I said I hadn't bought some of them anyway. I intend to buy a few more this weekend.

What nonsense did the silver subscribers get, if I may ask?

yes, i do feel the same, i'd like to see more things akin to the druid helm, but i feel as though that teeters on the edge of what could probably just be added into the game as armor. like claptrap helms and curly horned goat pot helms and what not. I certainly dont want to take away from the experience and hide it behind something that not everybody can enjoy.

A safari hat, for example.

Reason being that, A) Things which fit the lore and theme perfectly should arguably be ingame items possible to craft, and B) That some aspect of the store hats was some intended comic relief, though I have been trying to make them perhaps a notch less silly than bicycle helmets and beer hats.

The more I think about it the more ideas I have for ball games now. Pretty sure that Aurora is going to be hosting the hearthling equivalent of the olympics at this rate.
I met a man calling himself the god of lies yesterday. I'm not sure whether to believe him or not.

the comic relief looking back on my event does amuse me, especially when i explain it to others.

My first almost week of the game, i met a guy who lived north of me named Cpt. Richard, he messaged me and asked me to help him repair a wall of a decayed city so we could loot it. Needless to say, I was so enamored with the loot that we forgot about finishing the wall. As i nonchalantly walked about the city, a horse gallop played across my speakers as I witnessed a sombrero mustached man with a sword cut me down lol. Cpt. Richard never made it, and I never heard from him again, I was able to hearth home with 3hhp. It does certainly make me chuckle thinking back on it. :)

I totally agree and also the hats recently have been really good, the one this wk is on a par with the pirates, witch and cat hat, in fact it maybe tops them imo, so good job.
My only problem now is deciding which one to wear!

And, we need a blue merch robe equivalent! :)
